Area students compete in Poetry Out Loud
Each winner at the school level will recite at the semifinals in Barre. From there, ten students will be selected to compete in the finals on March 15 at the Elley-Long Music Center in Colchester. The finals will be aired live on Vermont PBS' web site and then broadcast on Vermont PBS on March 29 at 7 p.m. The winner of the Vermont State Competition then goes to the National Finals in Washington, D.C., where he or she will compete against champions from every state in the country. The state winner will compete in the National Competition in April.
These students are already champions, having won their high school's competition and thus a spot in the State Competition. The students are Caitlyn McDermott, Vermont Academy; William Florence, Twin Valley Middle High School; Zen Muhammed, Brattleboro Union High School.
